The wind in the sand induces different structures depending on its strength over the surface.
This fact does not allow to skip the similarities with the ion-induced nano-patterning effect in the
nano-scale. These similarities are higher at ultra-low energy, where the sputtering is negligible and
this surface reorganization has been shown to occur. A new method is applied to test the formation
of ripples at different angles being in good agreement with experiments.
